One day I was checking out the beauty section of WWD and seen an article about Gwen Stefani being the new face of L’Oreal Paris. Looking at Gwen made me remember that I had to feature her 2011 Spring Collection so I decided to get in contact with her new footwear rep, Alexandra Palermo. According to Ms. Palermo; one of the influences for the Spring Collection was the Early 80s. This time period is represented by the tonal material blocking of the Kai & Kaimi styles and the activewear influence of the Kapono and Kandis heels. Another influence came as result of Gwen’s desire to showcase different forms of movement through the serpentine form of woven leather, fluid forms of embroidery & patchwork and the light reflective qualities of pailletes. L.A.M.B always produces aggressive silhouettes with eye-catching materials and this season is no exception.
